Mr. Mehta is certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission as a Superior Court mediator. He enjoys mediating cases, especially workers’ compensation claims. In addition to practicing workers’ compensation law, Mr. Mehta also handles personal injury cases.

Mr. Mehta is married with one son and a dog named Alfred. He enjoys spending time with friends and family, traveling, sports, and reading.

Best lawyer!
Tear came to my eyes,I was scared didn’t know what to do when workers compensation dropped my case. He called me immediately When I sent massage to Mr. Viral Mehta. I was at his office two hours later! This is my first time I had no knowledge. He explained everything and answered all questions. He made me feel like I didn’t have to go though this alone. I recommend this outstanding law firm to anyone who has received work related injury.He is professional and gets job done. I’m happy with my settlement couldn’t thank him enough!!

Great Job!
Viral was great at handling my case. He kept me informed through the process. He made sure I understood the proceedings and made sure I had all the information I needed for my case to be successful.
